Scholarly publisher McFarland has launched Exposit Books, an imprint "combining serious nonfiction with a bookstore-first approach," according to the publisher. Exposit's initial offering is Finding Jacob Wetterling by Robert M. Dudley, and the first full group of titles, also featuring true-crime topics, is set for a fall 2017 debut.
"We're releasing six titles the first season, and true crime authors Kevin J. Sullivan and Clayton Delery-Edwards are both signed on and contributing books for the rollout," said executive editor Lisa Camp. "We will be publishing a wide range of titles, eventually including books about entertainment, psychology, sex, health and history. Our plan is to bring Exposit to 24 to 30 books annually."
